The police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect accused of two armed robberies in the Bronx.
According to the NYPD, the two incidents occurred last month in the 44th Precinct. The first was on August 15th, at about 3:30 p.m. Police say, "the suspect approached the 20 year-old female victim inside an elevator on Gerard Avenue and displayed a knife and demanded the victim's cell phone." The suspect took the victim's Nokia cellphone and fled.
Then, on August 17th, at 1 p.m., the suspect allegedly approached a 44-year-old victim between the first and second floors of a building on Eliot Place. Police say she told the victim to "give her everything she has," but the victim refused, leading the suspect to show her knife and threaten to cut her. The victim gave the suspect $80.
Police release video of the suspect, who is described as being 18 to 21 years old and having curly blond hair. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt and blue shorts:
